Will you play Ashes in VR?

The UE platform supports VR, and it should be available for this game before it comes out.  Will you play in VR? and if so on which system?

    Nah... I really dislike the fact that people are actually asking for VR for an MMORPG. Come on guys, it's just not the type lol.

    Huh, interesting question. I would be willing to try it. I think it would negatively impact my typing skills but don't really have any clue. 
  • Options
    Yeaahhhh.....nooooo, lol.

    Unless they had the technology to go "full dive mode", like in those anime's, than no.  Impractical in SO many ways.

    Can you elaborate on "not the type"? UE is for FPS...

    Please elaborate on the impractical ways?

    As a Dwarf, looking down would be so....disappointing.

    I don't think I want that stuff on my face ever. 
    but who knows, maybe I'll change my mind once I've tried?

    Mouse/keyboard for me. Call me old-fashioned, but I can't imagine playing a mmo (especially in dungeons/raids!) with a pair of VR goggles on my face.

    As a wee elf who loves the great outdoors I sure don't want to feel constrained!

    Granted, I'm not a tech person, but from what I know, VR headsets work by reading the wearers head movement, and translating that into how you orient your field of vision (first person).

    If that's the case, then how do does a player turn around to see behind themself, while sitting down/standing, with a VR headset presumably connected to either the monitor, or tower, while staying at their keyboard?  

    If a player can still orient themselves, using their keyboard/mouse, then no problem, though I'd still have reservations.  Like visual quality.

    I'm haven't kept track with how VR tech has advanced, but it still seems limited in some regards.  If there are any inaccuracies in my understanding, please explain.

    VR? You mean that head set I use to watch all my porn?

    I would kind of like to have it but I would also be worried if I entered the matrix ^^

    *pointedly ignores @Karthos* :p

    I'd love to, not sure about playing, but just going fit a walk in the world would be gorgeous....

    Though as i have a treadmill desk, this would be insanely stupid to try..... can't wait!

    My mother tried that for years, didn't work!

    Because I own Oculus I'll try it but I highly doubt I'll play it using VR.

    I don't know if I will play it often in VR, but I will definitely play around with it since I own a Vive. VR can be truly immersive. I have played WoW, GTA V, Skyrim, Mario Kart etc on VR. It was a blast. Fallout 4 VR and Doom VR are both coming out soon. I am not sure how feasible it would be on AoC during serious play such as raids without full VR support, but to go have some fun...sure, I am down.

    If it had full VR support, the controls would be completely different on a VR system. To give an example of this, games such as Redemption's Guild (an mmorpg currently in development for VR) requires you to actually make the hand movements-draw out spells in the air- to cast, when you are on your cleric. If you are on your rogue-you squat to the floor, that is like throwing a smokebomb and you disappear into the shadows. Because it tracks your movements, hand gestures etc-there is no need for a mouse and keyboard. It is literally you that is doing the motions, actually aiming with your bow, blocking that strike with your shield, and conjuring that spell.
    People who are against implementing VR for games either do not understand the dynamics, or are just being biased-much like the console wars you see debated on daily. The possibilities are endless with it.

    VR to expensive and not worth it

    Well, yeah, if I had a full setup, I'd try it. But I don't have any of it at this point in time.

    The poll results appear to be overwhelmingly against VR. I'm not a fan of it personally. I imagine that a player using it would be at a disadvantage against a player in the standard 3rd person mode. Tho, I can also imagine VR being big in the RP community.
  • Options
    The VR platform I would prefer for something like this would be the HTC Vive, where you are detected within a room and have some freedom to walk around. The only issue with this, however, is the whole standing for 15 hours at a time as I grind the game.

    All the nope.  No further explanation required.

    I see a couple of good points here.  It is true, that from a tactical standpoint you are better in 3rd person view than 1st person(VR being FP).  Also, if you are used to a keyboard/mouse combo, it might be seen as a lesser control scheme for precision, much as an original gamepad compared to the kybd/mouse.  Lots of naysaying also..

    VR for me is a gimmik much like the passing of 3d tv.
    I am intrigued to see where the same tech will go with Augmented Reality AR though.

    VR in ashes...nah

    While It might be interesting in an MMO, I don't think we are quite there yet technologically speaking. Plus a game of this sort needs to be built with something like VR in mind from the ground up. You just don't "tack" it on as an afterthought.

    Maybe after the tech has matured a bit and that MMO is built as a VT platform but not now.

    Not for me. but sounds rad

    With the constant possibility of PVP i am not too sure if this will be the game for me to use VR.  But would be happy if it ends up being an option because having the ability to choose VR would be nice.
  • Options
    It would be fun to play around with in game for maybe some social situations, but questing and raiding i would have to go with no.  Also the screen resolution we have available now for VR isn't quite where i would want it for extended use.  Not to mention many other problems that would need to be addressed for things as simple as typing a message to your friend, which if controls for you in VR are not an issue that's cool, it will be for many people.  VR will be a good jumping point to newer better technologies so i am in full support of its development but it currently has many limitations.

    We all of course know what it was developed for and i think it will stay around in some form for many years to fill that demand.

    The only VR and AR options that truly interest my are way too expensive right now and the technology is in it's infancy still.  I'd be willing to wait a few more years or even a decade or two more to see truly immersive VR for games.

    The problem with current VR games is everyone is trying to cash in quick. Either the game is visually stunning and the gameplay lackluster, or it is block polygon ala Minecraft and the gameplay is great. There are only a couple AAA titles out there at the moment, but like demisaturn2000 said, we all know what it is used for. Porn is getting better and better as they figure out how to shoot (pun) it correctly. Here is a fun little mmo in alpha testing atm. https://orbusvr.com/
